uber yes, uber fun.....etsy, etsy, etsy. i woke up and checked my email and then went to the etsy home page(yep, my morning ritual).......viola, i'm featured on the home page thanks to beth (eliwill). thanks so much girl.....what a way to start off the friday. i love the black paper lace and the acid green leg warmers. do you make things? do you wish you made things? would you like to sell them? do you wish you had an online presence to sell you funky, cool handmade goods? etsy is the inexpensive and easy answer. they have made it so simple for you to create a profile, and upload your images. it's free to set up your profile and .20 cents to list an item and they take 2 or 3% of the sale price but only after it sells. if you would really love to do this and have read the info and are still stumped, email me and i can walk ya thru it. it's worth it if your interested in selling a few things, or have a deadline, goal or motivation to make things. believe me, if i never applied to my first art festival at laumeier sculpture park back in 2001 i would probably still be working at the bakery decorating birthday and wedding cakes :O) you may be thinking, what's the benefit there are a gazillion crafters and diy's on etsy? i have sold to several customers out of the country to europe, japan and canada. my point is, those customers probably would not have found my www.jaimejofisher website. it's also a feel good time to be part of a completely handmade community. the site is super clever in design.....your images are picked and put into treasuries (which is how you get on the home page), people everywhere are looking thru all the time. you can even go and look at a treasury and see how many other people are looking at the same time. so give it a whirl if your at all interested. okay, that's enough of my etsy infomercial and no they don't pay me :O) i just looove that site and what i represents. here is my etsy page for reference.
well, i'm off to yoga!!!! good friday, sweet peas :O)
